My sister tagged me to do this meme. 

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Turn to page 123.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the next three sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
  • Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or intellectual book in your closet!  Just pick up whatever is closest!
  • Tag three people.

Okay, so here goes.  The book closest to me is Business Statistics by Ken Black.  I am in our spare room (which we use for a study room) and I’m preparing my lessons (while blogging at the same time… multi-tasking!).

Three methods of assigning probabilities are 1) the classical method, 2) the relative frequency of ccurrence method, and 3) subjective probabilities.  The classical method can assign probabilities a priori, or before the experiment takes place.  It relies on the laws and rules of probability. 

I haven’t had time to read any novels lately.  The last book I read was Memoirs of a Geisha (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and that was about a month ago. 

Anyway, I’m tagging Toni, Bugsy, and Bridget

What have you been reading lately? 🙂

Christmas is 6 months away, but who says we can't make a Christmas wish list this early?  I found this link in Toni's blog (one of the best blogs around, in my opinion).

So here's my Christmas list.

1.  A trip abroad alone

2.  A new SE W810i cell phone

3.  Some time alone

4.  A good book and time to read it undisturbed

5.  Seeing Nanay walk and talk again

What's your wish list?  I'm tagging everyone who has been too busy taking care of others that they haven't taken cared of themselves. 🙂
